You should contact your surgeon, that would seem to indicate a reaction to one of the meds they put you on. I’m not a doctor though. I had itchy skin where my incisions were healing but no rash. I would definitely have it checked out. Hang in there!

I am down close to 40lbs since starting the pre op diet on 4/22. scale hasnt move since Sunday but im not too concerned as I am following the rules and can see it in clothes already. Hitting a first milestone will feel really good but first I have to get below where I am which is the lowest I have seen in 5 years and stalled out in the past and quit after doing the traditional route.

Yes I did! Week 3 I was at the same weight for 4 days, lost a pound and stayed there for another 3 days. I’m averaging about 2 lbs/week, which is excruciating for me, but I have to try and look at the big picture. Stay strong!

Looks like I'm another slow loser as well. I had hope to be one who could boast about losing 60 lbs in 2 months, but nah. lol. I lost 6 lbs over the last month and 33 lbs altogether. I'll take it (... as if I have a choice 😉).
I'll kick cardio up a notch next month.

I had a rash all over my stomach and it was a reaction to the blood thinner:( hope it gets better soon!

I'm certain I'm going to be a slow loser too! Part of me is happy for skin side but the other is like ugh I want to feel lighter and do more things!

@Alwzla8 ,, I was thinking the same thing about myself .. I had my sleeve done on 4-10-19 .. I went in at 261 .. I’m currently at 228 , i thought I would have lost more weight by now since the amount of food I’m able to consume is SO small and I’ve started going to the gym about 2 weeks ago .. I’ve read lots about it and turns out losing 30 lbs in 4 to 8 weeks is normal and the mistake I’ve been making is not having enough Water .. just can’t stand drinking plain water ,, but it’s essential in helping the weight go down faster . Stay encouraged and continue on the plan and the weight will start to fall off .. I’m right there with you 👍🏼

I’m at 33 lbs since surgery. I am so happy with it. It is 33 I couldn’t have lost on my own in this time frame. I wish I could have lost more, but I am telling myself that it will happen in its time. I am finally on full foods, so that is a plus. It has been nice to eat dinner with the family and have virtually the same thing they are. 😊. You are doing great!  Keep up the good work.

Update had my 1 month checkup- weigh in on 5/16. I have lost another 3lbs since then and am at 201. That is a total of 37lbs from my starting weight. Just a couple more pounds to go to be out of the 200's for the first time in years. I just keep telling myself every lb. Lost is a step in the right direction.

Were almost surgery twins! My VGS was on 4/15. My HW was 227, pre-surg 218 and I’m at 198 now (I’m 5’1”). I’ve felt the same way, especially since I was at 199 for 5 days! But I’m down 2 shirt sizes and 1 pant size, so I know I’m losing! Just trying to stay positive...get to start regular foods Monday!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
